Obviously, you haven't read anything I've written. The films you mentioned are among my favorites. In fact, 2001 is my favorite. But nothing will change the fact that Gangs is a mess. Period.


Yes, I've read your stuff...that Eyes Wide Shut essay is so great I have it saved on my computer and wanna send it to everyone...Finnally someone takes the film as seriously as it deserves...

Quote from: satan of cinema
Now, to his themes. Christianity, pardon you believers, is dog dick. Hairy dog dick. Grow up. Pick up a fucking science book. Read A Brief History of Time, for Christís sake! Iím not interested in salvation because I donít acknowledge the existence of sin. Itís all human action Ė action decided on by millions of years of evolution as well as varying circumstances. For me, basing your movieís intellectual center around religion, which is a bullshit fairytale, or irrational emotion, is simpleminded.



oh dear.......i am not going to get into a religious arguement w/ you since you mentioned that you have "been an aeithist since the age of 6"......believe what you wanna believe....but as a general rule you should have more respect or ________ than to just attack peoples doctrines like this regardless if they worship Jesus or a bag of gummi worms...its about respect........i have been reading your posts and i think you are a smart guy..its just your lack or respect is unprofessional man..............chill
 

but.....the reason why i think your agruement about "basing characters around religion being simpleminded" is silly is b/c you dont "get it" man...
and it has nothing to do w/ just Christainity but different religions in general.......there are many films whose charcters and themes deal w/ the worlds others religions and being a person whose a spiritual guy i think when religion is used right in film its not "simpleminded" but powerful .........[some examples: 'it is accomplished" in last temptation of Christ, the begging/ redemption crying by kingsley in house of sand and fog, THE THIN RED LINE, there are som many powerful films that deal w/ all forms of religion.........i  need to sit back and think of some more i apologize for my lack of examples........and maybe you think my examples are bad.....w/ religion its always hard b/c of varying opinions..

but ...

maybe you are the one whose is being "simpleminded"....by not opening your mind to directors who roll w/ religious vibes..........im not saying you should believe in these religions, i m just saying you need to understand where the director is coming from........just let down your guard some......be a little vulnerable.........
